PRior to purchasing....

Postby pshaffer » Thu Feb 09, 2017 10:12 pm

What are the differences between the MacOS and iOS versions of the apps?

The prices are so different, it suggests a significant difference in the functions/performance

Can files from either be played by other midi players?

Can files from either be moved to/played in Garageband?

Hi

See here:
https://intermorphic.com/noatikl/#faq-desktop-v-mobile

Noatikl files can only be played in Noatikl (or Mixtikl, or Wotja). However, depending on which version of Noatikl you get, you can save a MIDI file and that could be played in Garageband the same as any MIDI file can. You can record the output of Noatikl with your preferred audio recorder and then load that audio recording in Garageband. Noatikl supports MIDI out in both iOS and Desktop versions you can control a MIDI synth that way. Finally, Noatikl for iOS supports Inter-app Audio and AudioBus so you could use that, or, on desktop, there is an AU Plugin.

I would suggest looking at Wotja 4 when it gets released in the next couple of days.

Hope that helps!

It depends what you mean, what your needs are and what you prefer to use. The Noatikl differences are detailed in the link given above!

If you are referring to Wotja, then yes. The desktop version is only a player, it is not an authoring tool.
